George Person: America's arrogance RESPONSE

America is not being arrogant, it's the pride in being free, and it's truly the only way to be... 
The Indians have the best of both worlds....they can work off the reservation...while at the same time they have land that is theirs to till the end of time...a place where they can specialize in whiskey, tobacco, and gambling...all that money today flowing into their tribes  ...Have they built manufacturing plants on their reservations?! Have they done anything truly meaningful to use the capital generated from Indian gaming to create a super business infrastructure?! Have they financed a Technological Institution created on the reservation for the purpose of graduating electrical engineers whose specialty is rocket science?! What have the Indians done to rival the great technological minds and work ethic of the white Europeans?!
 
When the Europeans came to America, the American Indians were at least 1000 years behind the Europeans in technological development, and getting further behind...
 
The Indians, as a group, has not generated one major technological achievement for mankind...Isn't it about time to get a message from the medicine man, that intellect and scientific achievement is good for the Indian people, and the defeats of yesterday is really an imposter for the victories of today, when the Indians through economic prosperity rise up in American society and build a better future and a truly enviable lifestyle?!
 
The foundation of this country is the destiny of all mankind...when one day, all men on Earth enjoy freedom, and enjoy the good life, and enjoy the comfort technological advancement brings to all of us...
 
However, when it came to justice, the mind of the American Indian was equal to the White European...which means with patience, the Indians could have absorbed all the knowledge enabling the technological transfer of European technologies into their culture...
 
The great challenge to the American Indian will be to see the white man for his good qualities...my ancestors didn't get to this country until the 1880's(NYC), and the rest came afterwards...I'm not responsible for the sin of another man, but I can help to pay for them by being an Indian's good friend...my ancestors believed in this country, and fought for this country....I had one that was at Pearl Harbor the day it was bombed...I'm American, I'm proud to be American, and I'm proud of the men who founded this country...and would call them friends and invite them to my table, when one day, I leave this world, entering the hearafter...
 
The Anerican Indian and all non-whites owe a lot to good white men...for they were the ones who put down Adolf Hitler...who, had he won WWII...would've turned the world into a concentration camp exterminating all non-whites....leaving this conversation a rather moot point...embrace the good white man - for without him, you would not exist...
